Beside Table Before and After

I found this table at the curb a few months ago. I know who it belonged to I used to watch his son before school. Anyway, it is a very well made piece but, with two boys at its former home it was pretty beat up. I brought it home and it sat in the hall way for several months. Since I had a extra day off work this week I decided it was time to get started!  Here is what it looked like before......



After one coat of paint.
Third and final coat.

I reused the same hardware. I like the aged look. 

I tried to get a close up of the distressing/sanding. This piece has a lot of interesting details.

 The table in its new location beside the bed. The lamp I bought last year when I redecorated the bedroom. The obelisk I found at Salvation Army and the vintage fan was a Esty purchase also last summer. I will be joining Beyond the Picket Fence for Under $100 linky party. Thanks for stopping by.


  1. Your tranformation is amazing! It looks so "rich". What a wonderful bedside table. I am going to have to spend more time looking for castoffs. You did a lovely job and really brought out the design of the piece.

  2. I love the table! You did an excellent job. I love to know I'm not the only one getting things from the curb! Thanks for sharing.

  3. Curbside cutie! Great transformation!
